Guide was awesome, very knowledgable about history, animals and plant life. The activites were very fun! We did the optional bungee jump, elephant walk and 4x4 game drive. We also did the adventure tour for the cango caves which is included in the booking. There is an easier route you can choose if you don't do the adventure. The hotels were clean (we chose 3-star), breakfasts were good. There is a lot of driving each day (at least 4 hours in the van daily). We had a lot of fun overall!

Trip was pretty much as advertised. Issac was a very good guide and I enjoyed his droll sense of humour. Sitting in the van was a bit rough, especially on the addo park game drive, but it was worth it to get up early as there seemed to be a lot of animals in the morning. The elephant walk was also a highlight.

Garden Route Tour January 2020

A comprehensive trip along the coast to Jeffrey’s Bay and back to Cape Town along Route 62 but attempting to squeeze too many activities in the allotted time. 3-star accommodation was excellent throughout as was our tour driver.

Cape to J'Bay coast - what an exciting adventure! A week may seem like enough time, however the Garden Route is packed with so many amazing activities.. you can easily spend days more exploring this region. This tour aims to ensure you can see as much possible by providing many options to choose from and we do stop approximately every 90minutes to rest and enjoy the views or another activity for a balance journey. Thank you for your excellent review about the accommodation and our wonderful tour guide. We hope to welcome you back soon to see even more of the Garden Route! From team Hotspots2c.

Nev (SIYABOLELA) was an excellent tour guide. Very informative and organized. He never get tired talking and telling stories even when most in the group are already asleep! We're not bored but only exhausted on the days activities. Hahaha! This tour will showcase scenic spots of Cape Town aside from 4x4 gaming drives where you will see wild boars, buffalo, elephants, spring bucks, kudus, wildebeest, giraffes, zebras and more. There are a lot of activities that you can participate. You will learn about Ostrich too and many more. I could have given this tour 5 stars but Island Vibe Backpackers accommodation fails to please us. Their double decks are worst - anyone sleeping below will bump his head even when sitting. Their showers and faucet bulbs were also grounded!!! Yes, Jeffreys Bay is nice but I think they need to change their accommodation here. For Backpackers Paradise - it's thumbs up! Superb! Afrovibe Backpackers is also good!

Excellent, superb, informative and organized.. the best words to hear on trip feedback. Thanks for taking the time to inform us of your tour experience and we want to apologise on behalf of the accommodation in Jbay mentioned. We've raised all your concerns with them and happy to report back that it is resolved. We've been using the same supplier for over 10 years now and this was a once-off issue that has been raised. Super excited to know you loved the rest of the Garden Route and . Addo Adventure with us and thanks for recommending this trip. Keep'on adventuring - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

With a multiple day tour, the guide made the tour. Our guide, Uriel, from HotSpot2C, certainly made the tour! He was courteous, considerate, and went over and above to make our experience a pleasant and memorable one. All the optional activities were excellent and we thoroughly enjoy our time! Thank you Uriel!

Hands down this was the best tour I have ever been on. Isaac the guide was brilliant, a true highlight of the trip. The elephant walk at Buffelsdrift was one of the best activities I have ever done. I opted for the 4 star accommodation which was absolutely stunning (esp. Dover bay guesthouse).
